In brief: Not usually

Most elbow fractures need immobilization or protected mobilization.
Once the fractur is healed swimming is a great exercise to regain motion and strength.

In brief: Elbow fracture

generally, any resisted exercise, such as swimming, is a bad idea with an unhealed elbow fracture
